I have three methods in API running similar code snippets. For this reuse the code inserted a switch-case according to the API method.
It's good practice that? I mean, this isn't a high coupling and low cohesion? There is another better way?


@ApiOperation(value = "Gerar permalinks de todos os arquivos com validação", response = Permalink.class)
    @RequestMapping(value = "{validacaoId}/permalink/all", method = RequestMethod.POST)
    public Permalink gerarPermalinkComValidacao(@PathVariable("validacaoId") String validacaoId) {
        return permalinkService.createPermalink(validacaoId, "Permalink com validação");

    @ApiOperation(value = "Gerar permalinks de todos os arquivos NOKS com validação", response = Permalink.class)
    @RequestMapping(value = "{validacaoId}/permalink/noks", method = RequestMethod.POST)
    public Permalink gerarPermalinkNoks(@PathVariable("validacaoId") String validacaoId) {
        return permalinkService.createPermalink(validacaoId, "Permalink NOKS com validação");

    @ApiOperation(value = "Gerar permalinks de todos os arquivos sem validação", response = Permalink.class)
    @RequestMapping(value = "{validacaoId}/permalink", method = RequestMethod.POST)
    public Permalink gerarPermalinkSemValidacao(@PathVariable("validacaoId") String validacaoId) {
        return permalinkService.createPermalink(validacaoId, "Permalink sem validação");


public Permalink createPermalink(String validacaoId, String tipo) {
        Validacao validacao = validacaoDAO.findById(validacaoId);
        Permalink permalink = new Permalink().setId(Util.getMd5Time(validacaoId));
        if (validacao == null) {
            throw new NotFoundException("Erro ao gerar permalink: ID da validação inválido.");
        BasicDBList pecas;
        switch (tipo) {
            case "Permalink com validação":
                pecas = getAllFilesWithValidation(validacao.getId(), permalink.getId());
            case "Permalink NOKS com validação":
                pecas = noksWithValidation(validacao.getId());
            case "Permalink sem validação":
                pecas = getAllFiles(validacao.getId(), permalink.getId());
                throw new IllegalArgumentException("Tipo de permalink inválido.");
        if (!pecas.isEmpty()) {
                    .setLogo(permalinkDAO.getLogo(validacao.getInstancia()).getString("logo", ""))
            return permalink;
        throw new InternalServerErrorException("Erro ao obter peças para permalink.");
  1. Use English for your variable names, request routes, and Exception messages. Imagine a remote developer joins your company (very common these days), they wouldn't be able to understand the stack traces.

  2. validate your parameters before creating unnecessary objects

    Validacao validacao = validacaoDAO.findById(validacaoId);
    if (validacao == null) {
        throw new NotFoundException("Validacao cannot be null");
    Permalink permalink = new Permalink().setId(Util.getMd5Time(validacaoId));
  3. The switch statement however is fine.

  • \$\begingroup\$ The NotFoundException is fine when the passed-in ID isn't found; the parameter from outside isn't null. \$\endgroup\$ – ferada May 13 '15 at 19:45
  • \$\begingroup\$ @ferada I removed the second point, I think you are right \$\endgroup\$ – Sleiman Jneidi May 13 '15 at 19:51
  • \$\begingroup\$ I think much better place in English but it will be available only to Brazilian people and is a convention on the team use Portuguese \$\endgroup\$ – Daniela Morais May 14 '15 at 11:37
